Elsevier is a leader in providing trusted online resources to colleges world-wide and publishes six collections as part of their ScienceDirect College Edition online resources. Three collections contain primary research journals and three collections contain leading reference materials. Our Reference Department provides access to the primary research journals for health and life sciences as part of the Health and Life Sciences Collection. Users can link from citations to referenced full-text article and access scholarly information (i.e. specific fields of study research findings or current trends) not available in any other online database. Information from the present to 2001 is part of this subscription. We do not subscribe to titles older than 2001. Interlibrary Loan is still a viable option for older articles not part of the Reference Department subscription.
